Miss Japan wins Miss International 2012!

Last night, Miss International 2011, Maria Fernanda Cornejo crowned her successor. Miss Japan, Ikumi Yoshimatsu won the crown last night. She was the FIRST Japanese beauty queen to win a crown in Miss International. People didn't expected this to happen, people began to question, "Was it on a home court basis?" Judges had a hard time in choosing the winner, Miss International Organization even extended 10 minutes for deliberation.

When all the girls have finished, social media gone wild on the answers of Haiti, Philippines, Paraguay, India, Japan, USA and United Kingdom. But among those who stood out in their speeches, only Paraguay and Japan made it to the Top 5! But, overall, Japan did a great job in the pageant, some say that I wasn't on a home court basis, but instead, Japan did a commendable job in the pageant itself. Let's journey with her as she starts her reign.
